Scott is trying to rebound from the crushing heartbreak of his British Open collapse by getting back into major championship contention. He opened with a solid 68.
Playing in his home state of South Carolina, Johnson is a solid bet to continue the PGA Championship's tradition of producing first-time major winners.
The Big Easy will try to pull off a rare British Open-PGA Championship two-fer, the first since Padraig Harrington in 2008.

Tiger's having what would be considered a career year for most players — the most wins (3) and the most FedExCup points. But for Tiger, it's all about the majors, and he hasn't won one in more than four years. He wants this one badly.
